Top Ten Reasons to Hate Serena from Pokemon


The Contenders: Page 2

21 She's not even good at showcases

I hate showcases in general to be honest. You may as well call them 'Contests, minus the battling', because that's what they basically are.

Showcases are somewhat different from contests because the trainer gets involved too in my opinion.

And if she's not good at them at all then how the hell did she reach the very finals?! Biased reasoning as always in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

22 There is nothing special about her

Misty- she had a dark past but she still managed to get out of it and show her sisters that she's not a ru nt. v ery admirab le. a nd despite quarrelling with each others, they love each oth er. h ints had been sho wn. a sh got jealous of another guy and stared at her for she looked beautif ul. b ut ash didn't to it with other femal es. t here are PLENTY of other hints, on both sides.
m ay- very good character development.
d awn- girly but still very cute and cheerful
s erena - bratty meanie, and rest ya know.
i wasn't able to control myself after seeing ash. I'm not saying he's mine but still he's so handsome and good. I'm not gay I'm a girl of 13. I wish misty
c ame in kalos and kicked serena's ass
a nd ash and misty kissed in front of h er. i t would be a good lesson for her.
a sh was the cutest in kanto to joh to. h oenn to unova was okay but don't you think that kalos is ...more

23 She looks more stupid when she blushes

I want to slap her when she does this. - eventer51314

My rage level went up over 9000 when I first saw those two images of Serena blushing! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

For an anime fan like me, I actually find it cute when an anime girl blushes. Like when Asuna Yuuki from Sword Art Online does it. However, if we're talking about Serena here, then BLEH! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Ash: Thanks, Serena!
Serena:(blushes) Oh, Ash...
Clemont: Yeah, you totally rock!
Serena: Oh, um, thanks?...

24 She's shallow

Oh I lost a battle. I need to cut my hair because I need to. ASH LOST A LOT AND HE didn't DO ANYTHING STUPID INSTEAD HE KEPT TRYING HE DID CRY SOMETIMES BUT HE NEVER QUIT! Serena is this dumb blonde who thinks she has a chance with Ash oh please Ash was better off with Misty I hope Misty comes back and Serena kills herself cause Ash and Misty get together

I mean, she thinks cutting her hair and changing her outward appearance is gonna help her? - eventer51314

Yeah, and have you seen the movie Joy, with Jennifer Lawrence? Her character cuts her hair to symbolize a fresh start, but only after she had gone through great hardship! Serena though? She cuts her hair after ONE loss, in her very first performance. SO dumb & pathetic. - eventer51314

Serena is the most shallow person I HEARD OF EVER! Not only she's a devil and a jerk to girls and obsessed with being clean and looks she's ignorant. Clemont, Tierno, and Jimmy are all SUPER nice to her and helpful and what do they get in return? NOTHING! She just makes fun of them and ignores them!

The reason I cut my hair was to make it easier to take care of and it was in bad shape. serena had no particular reason to cut her hair.

25 Her goal has nothing to do with Pokemon

I like performing except that you have to wear cute dresses. But what I really hate is that Serena doesn't get in " touch " with her Pokemon. She bosses them around. Even worse is she rarely battles and only when she does it is to impress Ash. People say she's bad " only because she has 3 Pokemon". Don't blame the Pokemon. I hope she gets five Pokemon and STILL LOSES. But she doesn't need Pokemon to lose all she needs isherself

Showcases are like idol anime. So much focus is on the 'trainers' (if you could even call them that), might as well replace the Pokemon with smoke machines and laser lights. - eventer51314

Should've stuck to Rhyhorn racing instead of Pokemon Showcases, Serena. What a bitch. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

26 Most of what she does is to impress Ash

The only reason she does anything is to impress Ash... Baking? Check. Performing? Check Check. Battling? CHECK CHECK CHECK. When will Serena learn that keys, foods, and moves will NOT get the guy. He needs a dorky, silly, smart, sassy girl... like ME!


27 She's useless

Sawyer got 8 gym badges before Ash did. I blame Serena. She made the group take detours for her dumb showcases. She's always holding the them up for stupid, pointless things like shopping, making sure she doesn't get dirt on herself, baking Pokepuffs, the list goes on! - eventer51314

Jessie is far mor competent & smarter, and prettier than Serena can ever dream of.

She is SO worthless that I wouldn't toss her into the grarbage because I'll feel SORRY for it. All she does is complain, whine, bully, and blush. She sucks at everything. Her motto :" Ash must be mine and nothing else matters! "

Alright, I kinda agree with most of it, but I would stop my journey for a Pokèpuff! (Stomach growls)

28 She's a Mary Sue

Yo, SAO haters. Sorry to rain on your salt parade, but if you think Kirito is too much of a Gary Stu, then Serena is twice the Mary Sue of him. At least Kirito ACTUALLY HAS PROBLEMS, but Serena? Probably little to none at all! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

She gets moves when she rarely battles, Pokemon that evolve when they don't do anything, everyone likes her & treat her nicely even when she ignores clemont, she's inconsiderate and attacks ash with snowballs & 'it's all ash's fault,' and she has no faults what's so ever that's recognized in the anime. Yuck worst character in Pokemon ever!

She's a worse Mary Sue than Kirito and Asuna Combined!, worse than the worst Mary Sue ever Amy Rose!, - Hoxton

'Shes not a Mary Sue because she lost to aria' yea because she was in a popularity contest 🙄

29 She thinks Ash likes her

That isn't true! 1 ash usually ignores or yells at her 2 they are total opposites 3 SHES EVIL WHILE HIS NAME ACTUALLY MEANS BIG HERO

She does seem completely delusional at times. Like when she goes & tries to hold ash's hand, scoot closer during the picture, and acting like she knows ash real well (LOL THAT BACKFIRED SO BAD), when she was suppost to warn him about a snowstorm.

I don't think Ash's eyes sparkling after Serena kisses him count. That could be just out of surprise. - yungstirjoey666

Even the Amourshippers think about it, according to an Amourshipper on Instagram, after the "kiss" that Serena made, that stupid Amourshipper said, "Oh come on, Ash. You know you like her", I was like "! NO... HE... DOESN'T! " She thinks that "Okay, Ash will have to 'notice' me some time. I know that Ash 'likes' me, so I'll do my 'best' to have him 'notice' me! " Augh! No! - ClassicGaminer

30 She's irrelevant to the story, plot, and the group
31 Serena is solely there for ship baiting and fan service

I hate that the only reason she was there was for shipping and fan service.They wanted some drama... NOW XYZ is DESTROYED! She is mean, dumb, and useless. No wonder Unava was the best. Lots of great music, effects, characters, and the RIGHT amount a drama. NO SERENA! WHOS WITH ME

That is so true. And I'm glad to see another person who knows that Best Wishes had good points too. - FrozenHatingPokefan

She is not going to Ahola. And if she does, why does it even matter? Misty went to Kanto, Johto, Orange Islands, and even returned in Hoen. No one has been in there that long ( excepts Brock ). Not even the fan may. Its not like there married! YEESH! Big deal if she keeps stalking Ash or Not. If there is another bad character ( I'm asking the producers to put me in it, like loads of fans ) I am gonna GO INSANE. But then again there can't be anyone worst than Serena...

32 Her main quality by fans is "being the prettiest female companion" when she isn't

EXCUSE ME? NO SHE isn't! She's just s pretty as Dawn! Serena may be outer pretty but she ain't inner pretty. And people shouldn't judge people by looks!

And if we take her redesign in account, I'd vote she b the UGLYIST female companion. Yep even behind Iris.

Her fans are as shallow as she is

"Yep even behind Iris"

I hope Iris isn't considered the ugliest companion because she's black. Iris also has the most unique design out of the female leads we had. - Rue

33 She worries about getting dirty

Ok I can kind of understand this but with serena, when either not getting dirty or saving her pokemon was a big decision? Seriously!? This is not only annoying, its downright offensive.

Disgusting, stupid, stereotypical waste of space! - FrozenHatingPokefan

Oh what a Mary Sue

Serena wouldn't get muddy to save her Fennekin.

Meanwhile Lillie would put herself in harms way to save her egg/alolan vulpix despite being afraid to touch Pokemon. - Rue

34 She is the least favorite traveling companion.

Everybody has a fave old traveling companion. Since I'm a nerd like Clemont ( but ash is my fave ;) ) I study the results. They are... 5. Brock 4. Cilan. 3. Misty 2. May 1. Clemont. Notice Serena isn't THERE. Not even close. Why are these people in? Brock. While annoying he was a fave of many and brought lots of humor AND ACTUALLY CONTRIBUTED TO THE PLOT. Cilan, like Brock was another hilarious and kind fave. Misty while annoying and brattish did bring lots of happiness ( and laughs ) in the series. May, being kind, brave, and adventurous has gotten herself in lots of people's hearts. And why is Clemont number one? Because all out of all the companions he is the most unique. No other protagonist has loved science as much as he does. He's very creative and smart. While he has lots of self doubt ( which we can all relate to) he is the kindest out of all of them. And why Serena isn't? Well, its because SHE SUCKS. She's mean, evil, nasty, stupid and just plain rude! She's mean to ...more

Stop your complants

I believe it! But the Pokèpuffs and macaroons tell me not to believe it... She is a good cook!

35 She doesn't care about Pokemon
36 She only has relevance in her "Serena focused episodes", which makes her less of a character and more like a prop

A living doll, who parades around at her dumb Showcase thingies. - eventer51314

37 She barely has any Pokemon

You could evolve your Eevee into a sleek, powerful Umbreon, a cute, yet strong Vaporeon or a wise, mystic Espeon. NAH! Lets evolve it into a pretty pink Sylveon and enter it in competitions! Jeez.

I'm glad she doesn't have any more Pokemon. It was bad enough they gave her an Eevee just so it could evolve into Sylveon and look SUPER girly and cute next to her at her performances. No more Pokemon need to be rendered useless under her training! - eventer51314

Right, I understand. It's just another thing wrong with her character. - eventer51314

Gee I wonder why.. is it because she ruins the Pokemon? Like instead of letting Evee evolve into a silly Leafeon, a sleek Umbreon, or a friendly Vaporeon she basically forces it to. Evolve into a stupid pretty pink Slyveon JUST to use it in contests. And I'll pressure it to evolve during a battle so I can impress Ash! Please don't get me started on the others.

She didn't know her Eevee was gonna evolve it just happened but I admit I like Umbreon better

38 If you aren't into amourshipping, there is very little to care about when it comes to Serena

If you aren't obsessed with barf shipping ( Slash Amour ) there is nothing to like. Without a shipping she's just even more useless ( or less anyones guess ).

I was not, I didn't think much of it when I heard about this (amourshipping) crap coming into existence. Can you believe I kind of did (support amourshipping) when I attempted to support her the second time?! - ClassicGaminer

Amour isn't necessarily my OTP but I can stand it. BUt what I can't stand is the fans, who try to make serena seem perfect in every way. She's not. She has like, 3 flaws that barely count and she is just the surface of pretty much everyone in the world - gamerkitty6274

I don't generally like Serena, but I feel sorry for her when a bunch of creepy Amourshippers strip her down to her undies.

39 She acted like a baby when she lost a showcase

So you lost a stupid showcase. Deal with it. Ash lost the KANTO LEAGUE and he didn't cry or beat himself up. May and Dawn lost so many contests, they cried, but became determind in the end. Heck, Brock's parents left him, and with 9 little siblings. He had to take care of all of them and run a gym! You just lost in a dumb little performance and cut your hair!

Just yes. One measly little Showcase. My friend lost the school Presidency and she didn't really care but she was a little sad, who wouldn't be? The President is much more important than a SHOWCASE! Come on, Serena, let down your hair!

Dude, if Serena ever met Dawn and they became good friends (Llama God forbid that ever happen), and Dawn opened up about crying after her 3rd lost Showcase, Serena would be like 'I've had worse. I cried after my first! Ash was staring at me and I felt so embarrassed! ', then Dawn- or anyone, really- would ditch her right there. Come on, Serena. Ash doesn't cry after his battle. Dawn doesn't cry after her 2nd or 1st showcase. May doesn't cry after her first battle against Drew. Iris doesn't cry when Dragonite disobeys her. Cilan doesn't cry when Iris calls him a pain (I mean, he was severely depressed, but that's beside the point). So come on, Serena. You're in a world full of magical creatures that fight and ruthless stakes. Grow up. And stay far away from Ash in the process.

40 Barbie is jealous of her

Lol Barbie shouldn't be. She gots her man, can do more than Serena can ever dream, isn't as stupid as her to cut her hair thinking that'll change her, & is a much better role model for kids as (as far as I know) isn't dependent on a guy, is able to do more than be pretty, is very successful in her life, & is capable to do more than Serena can ever dream.

Who ever said this is totally wrong Serena should be jealous of Barbie. She's a stupid blond who is obsessed with Ash

Ha! Please. Serena is a Barbie rip off. - eventer51314

Barbie wouldn't be jealous of Serena.

Barbie has everything. She's rich, she has many careers that she's successful in, she has her man, she's independent, she is somewhat of a role model... Not the perfect role model mind you but she's more of a role model than Serena and Barbie has more to her than Serena does.

So yeah, Barbie wouldn't be jealous. - Rue
